Canada has had a long tradition of commemorating the Confederation of Canada and recognizing deserving Canadians the first of which happened in 1867 and continued in 1927, 1967, and 1992.

“Unfortunately, the Liberal government decided not to issue a commemorative medal in 2017 to mark the Canada’s 150th, however I believe this is an important tradition that I felt should be continued,” added Schmale. “There is no better way to celebrate this important year than by recognizing the outstanding contributions of the people who have made Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock great.”

The Canada 150 Awards will be presented to the chosen recipients in July in fifteen categories, including; Agriculture, Arts, Culture, and Heritage; Caregivers; Community Builders; Educators; Entrepreneurs; Faith in Action; First Responders; Good Neighbours; Legions and Ladies/Youth Auxiliaries; Older Adults; Service Clubs; Sports and Recreation; Youth/Student; and Other.
